I have been study Jake Voytko's GSoC project producing graphs plots in Scalable Vector Graph format (very promising but needs some
edges smoothed off).
I've been adding a method for the program to add copyright information
at least as a comment,
"<!-- Copyright Paul A. Bristow, 2007 --> \n"
but also as meta data.
<meta name="copyright" content="Paul A. Bristow" />
I also wonder if it would be useful to add a licence using the example below?
Does anyone have an experience and/or views on this?

Metadata relevant to the data copyright of the entire document should be added to metadata element of the topmost svg element. This allows the author to unambiguously state the licensing terms for the entire document. The scheme may also be used elsewhere in the document, for pieces that have different licensing. For example, an SVG font may have specific licensing details expressed in its own metadata element. Note that inclusion of this metadata does not provide the author with a method in which to protect or enforce their copyright, it simply bundles the copyright information with the content in a defined manner. Providing methods, technical or non-technical, for data protection is currently beyond the scope of the SVG specification. The suggested vocabulary for Copyright information is the Creative Commons Metadata Set. This does not exclude the use of other metadata schemes. http://wiki.creativecommons.org/Implement_Metadata <meta name="copyright" content="Paul A. Bristow" /> http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-think18.html gives an example of using this: <metadata> <rdf:RDF xmlns:cc="http://web.resource.org/cc/" xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"> <cc:work rdf:about="filename.svg"> <!-- insert filename or title here --> <dc:title>Plot title</dc:title> <dc:creator>Boost.Plot</dc:creator> <dc:author>Paul A.
